Steptoe Cyberlaw Podcast - Interview with David Hoffman

September 3, 2014

In our thirty-second episode of the Steptoe Cyberlaw Podcast, Stewart Baker and Michael Vatis discuss:

  • This month in NSA:  The NSA released Judge Bates’s redacted opinion of the FISC; journalists attempt to make an issue out of the fact that the NSA has developed a search engine for metadata called ICREACH; Laura Poitras and Der Spiegel provide information on US intelligence collection on Turkey; German intelligence intercepted Hillary Clinton and John Kerry as they carried out diplomatic efforts
  • The Microsoft case questioning the government’s authority to issue warrants for overseas data continued to evolve over the month
  • LinkedIn settles its data breach case for a relatively modest $1.25 million
  • NIST seeks comment on how its Cybersecurity Framework is working
  • A federal court in Massachusetts rules that computers are only protected under CFAA if they are connected at the moment when they are attacked
  • US courts hold that search engines are not liable for the links they publish or their autocomplete suggestions

In our second half we discuss the right to be forgotten with David Hoffman, the Director of Security Policy and Global Privacy Officer at Intel Corporation.
